Cognos Cuts Deal With Integration Software VendorCognos Cuts Deal With Integration Software Vendor
Cognos also will acquire a $4.5 million minority stake in Composite Software.
December 7, 2004
Business-intelligence software vendor Cognos Inc. will build enterprise information-integration technology from Composite Software Inc. into its ReportNet reporting and analysis product, Cognos said Tuesday. Cognos also said it will make a $4.5 million minority equity investment in Composite.
Embedding the Composite Information Server into ReportNet will let ReportNet users pull data from a range of disparate sources for analysis, according to Cognos. Composite's software, for example, can extract real-time operational data from systems based on XML, Java Database Connectivity, Web Services Description Language, and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol standards without moving or replicating the data, the company says. Cognos already makes a range of information-integration technologies available to its customers through partnerships with Ascential, Attunity, Informatica, IBM, and others. But the Composite deal is the only one in which Cognos builds the integration software into its own product. ReportNet with the Composite software is available now.
